We still have a hard time believing this is the same woman who ruled the upper east side.
Leighton Meester casually hypnotized in jeans with a folk-fueled performance of Heartstrings for VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live.
The former Gossip Girl's earthy tone reminds us of Jewel, so obviously we can't get enough!
And all that soul! LOVE IT.

We CANNOT WAIT to hear her debut album of the same name, out October 28!!
In the meantime, ch-ch-check out the first single (below)!!
Sounds like Taylor Swift has some serious competition in the music writing department!
Everybody knows breakup songs are the best when there's a TON of anger and passion behind it!
Even though Leighton Meester is happily married to Adam Brody, the songs on her new album that she wrote stemmed from painful breakups from the past!

She explained that the record was primarily inspired by a split years ago, she said:
Leighton Meester is back to flexing that acting muscle again!
When she wasn't busy tying the knot or belting out songs with her AH-Mazing vocals, Leighton found the time to film By The Gun.
And gurl looked gorgeous doing it too!

But besides that skin-tillating seXXX scene between her nekked bod and Ben Barnes' pecs, this flick — out December 5th — looks like quite the thrilling crime flick!

Marriage is one big step!
And for Leighton Meester, it was a life-changing step.

The actress opened up to InStyle about the major change she's seen in her life since becoming Seth Cohen's wifey…
…and it sounds like a pretty wonderful change! She said:
Did someone get lost on their way back to the Upper East Side?!
Leighton Meester is best known for playing the deliciously snobby Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, but her new music is more indie than designer label.
We're hearing hints of female folksy powerhouses (Joni Mitchell, anyone??) on Heartstrings.
It's not hard to envision Leighton running through a field somewhere with flowers in her hair while singing this tune! LOLz!
Can't wait to hear the entire nine-track LP out October 28th!!!!

Married life sure looks good on these two!
How totally cute are Leighton Meester and her hand-holding hubby, Adam Brody?!
